Tips to help your family sit less and move more

We’ve got a whole library of practical tips to help you and your family get moving! Keep it fun by trying out some of our challenges, too.


  • Make sure you get to put your feet up at some point too! Rest is also important to recovery, particularly if you are on your feet or on the go all day every day.

  • There are lots of things you can do at home to build strength. Why not try using tins of tomatoes as hand weights?

  • Set aside a morning for a brisk walk around the lake with the family - the kids can take their bikes or scooters.

  • Blow bubbles and make a game of the kids chasing, catching and popping them. Make a tally of how many bubbles they catch and see if they can catch one more each time!

  • Don't forget, shovelling or carrying heavy loads makes you huff and puff which counts as vigorous activity.
